Judge gives 60-year sentence to man who used Craigslist to arrange rape of Casper woman

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — A judge has sentenced a man to serve 60 years in prison for using Craigslist to arrange the rape of a Casper woman.

District Judge David Park on Monday sentenced 28-year-old Jebidiah James Stipe, of Twentynine Palms, Calif.

Stipe pleaded guilty last month to sexual assault, aggravated kidnapping and aggravated burglary.

Prosecutors say Stipe pretended to be his ex-girlfriend in Casper when he posted an ad on the Internet advertising site Craigslist late last year. He stated the woman was looking for a man to carry out a "rape fantasy."

Prosecutors say Ty Oliver McDowell, of Bar Nunn, responded to the ad and raped the woman. McDowell also pleaded guilty to felony charges. His sentencing is set for Tuesday.
